Pivot's Shuttle eMTB - First Look
@Thustlewhumber: Yes, and Strava in and of itself is pretty lame. If you want to crush it against other people then show up at a race and do so. First of all, strava isn't very accurate and it's not under the same conditions as a competitive race. Yet, Stava people have the nerve to criticize other technologies. Put your phone away and be a true rider, one with nature. In fact, don't even drive to your next ride, go straight from your house and be the hardcore rider you speak of...

Pivot's Shuttle eMTB - First Look
@randybadger: Spot on mate... It's the same type of fools that said snowboarding is stupid on the ski slopes... Look at it now... X Games/Olympics/Professionals... Chris said it very clearly "Pivot is technology, engineering and innovation driven BIKE company." WHY BE IN BUSINESS TO FAIL? That's why the direct to consumer model is so effective yet killing the bike shops. The model was created primarily because bikes shops in general was failing to adapt to the needs of their customers/consumers. Hence, a huge slump in the industry for many years with many companies closing doors because of their inability to adapt. Good on ya Chris and the whole Pivot Cycles Team.

Rachel Atherton Injured in Fort William
@kubaner: That's is what I was thinking... For example, when a fighter has to pull out of a fight because of injury during training, it doesn't reflect on their record as a loss. Why people saying end to a dominant run. She has to race to be beat, just my thought...

First Look: Intense's New 29er DH Bike
@barrysbikes: Yes, you had the foresight to understand the physics behind the larger wheel. It is human nature to refuse to adapt till they cannot keep up anymore, then adoption occurs. But the fight will continue until the dominance is evident...

First Look: Intense's New 29er DH Bike
@TheR: yeah, i rode my DJ 26" for half a season in the cruiser class just for the hell of it... It was fun but not very competitive mainly because BMX is all about acceleration out of the gate and being able to flow but most tracks have a rhythms sections that are designed for the smaller wheels so you naturally get hung up in those sections... Not to mentioned any sort of suspension your bike totally sucks all power.

First Look: Intense's New 29er DH Bike
@Duderz7: Yes, we have that as a fun class at my local BMX facility also... I normally ride 29" for mountain so the drop down to 24" is not bad but the drop to 20" is a bit sketchy for me. So I can relate to the circus feeling.

First Look: Intense's New 29er DH Bike
@jaame: yes, in general BMX has 2 tire categories 20" Class and 24" Cruiser Class. 90% falls into the 20" class. Sometimes when an open class race is held, you can see the clear differences between the two tire sizes on the track at the same time. Acceleration is always faster with the 20", so out of the gate and down the first stretch no competition but the 24" will catch them towards the end of the course. Another interesting note is that if the track course is natural dirt, bumpy, rough, or long the 24" will dominate after about mid track.

ya mate, spot on... So many clowns with too many opinions and not much experience.... I'm sitting on my Island in the sea (Hawaii) and already knew that it was an inevitable that this evolution was coming. Racing DH or mountain for that fact is not like racing BMX. If all variable were constant regarding the bike and it's rider, the longer and more difficult the course is, the bigger tires in diameter and width will always win... laws of physics. By the way, it is also the same for road racing... even they are trying to design higher volume tires and wheel combinations because it rolls better. I don't see any 20" BMX tires on the Tour de France, i'm just saying...
